An Anglican priest from Preston Beach south of Perth has been charged with child sex offences after allegedly abusing a young girl during a 16-month period.

The priest, 64, has been accused of sexually assaulting the girl between August 2010 and November 2011 while working at a church in Secret Harbour, north of Mandurah.

The child was 10 when the abuse allegedly began.

The man has been charged with three counts of indecent dealing with a child under 13 and one count of persistent sexual contact with a child under 16.

He is due to appear in the Rockingham Magistrates Court.

Police said the charges resulted from an investigation into alleged historical child sexual offences.
